The AWS Solutions team recently updated Multi-Region Application Architecture, a reference architecture that models a serverless active/passive workload with asynchronous replication of application data and failover from a primary to a secondary AWS Region.

This update enables write operations when the application is failed over to the secondary region and moves the sample web application to a separate, optional CloudFormation template.

The reference architecture uses Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) Cross-Region replication and Amazon DynamoDB Global Tables to asynchronously replicate application data between the primary and secondary AWS Regions. The sample photo sharing web application is provided to demonstrate the availability of the application data after failing over to the secondary region.

Additional AWS Solutions offerings are available on the AWS Solutions webpage, where customers can browse solutions by product category or industry to find AWS-vetted, automated, turnkey reference implementations that address specific business needs.
